About this event

This 1-hour virtual workshop will dive into the exciting world of motion design and its power to elevate user experiences (UX) in modern apps. We'll go beyond the basic animations of buttons and explore how subtle movements and transitions can transform your app into a more engaging and delightful experience.

Who should attend?

This workshop is perfect for:

- Developers: Learn how to integrate motion design principles into your code to create a more polished and user-friendly app.

- Designers: Discover how even basic animation techniques can enhance your app's visual hierarchy and user flow.

- Anyone interested in mobile app development: Gain valuable insights into the growing importance of motion design in the modern app landscape.

What will you learn?

- The power of motion in UX: We'll explore how animation can guide users, provide feedback, and create a more intuitive and engaging experience.

- Beyond buttons: We'll move beyond basic click animations and discover how to use motion to:

  • - Highlight key elements and information.
  • - Create a sense of hierarchy and importance.
  • - Smooth transitions between screens and views.
  • - Personalize the user experience.
  • - Add a touch of delight and polish.

- Animation principles for developers: We'll introduce the fundamental principles of animation (timing, anticipation, etc.) and how these can be applied within code using popular animation libraries (brief overview).

- Hands-on workshop: We'll get our hands dirty with a practical coding exercise! (Don't worry, no prior coding experience is necessary!) We'll provide a pre-designed static app screen and guide you through the process of brainstorming and implementing simple animations using an animation library or basic animation principles within code. (Pair programming encouraged!)

What will you take away?

By the end of this workshop, you will be equipped with:

A solid understanding of the importance of motion design in modern apps.

Practical techniques and tools to incorporate basic animations into your app development process.

The confidence to experiment with motion and elevate your app's user experience.


Bonus!

We'll also provide you with a list of valuable resources for further learning, including online tutorials, documentation, and animation libraries.

Get ready to unlock the power of motion design and take your app development skills to the next level!
